The SEC tournament champions faced off against the second-seeded Minnesota Golden Gophers in a win-or-go-home game for the latter team. The Aggies jumped on the team right from the start, opening up a 4-0 lead in the first four innings.
Left fielder Joel Davis got his team going in the second inning when he recorded two RBIs with a bases-clearing triple. Texas A&M added on two more runs in the fourth on a pair of sacrifice RBIs by first baseman Hunter Melton and shortstop Austin Homan.
The Gophers cut the lead to 5-2 going into the ninth inning, but the Aggies wouldn’t let up at the plate. They added on three runs in the inning, two of which came off a two-RBI single by second baseman Ryne Birk.
The Aggies will now host in-state opponent TCU in the Super Regional slated to begin this weekend.
